Grandouet is out.

http://www.racingpost.com/news/horse...ry/991297/top/

Quote:
GRANDOUET, one time 5-1 second favourite for the Stan James Champion Hurdle, will miss Cheltenham due toan injury to his near hind (back left) fetlock joint.

Nicky Henderson told racingpost.com on Thursday: "There was further improvement in the joint today but he will not be ready to gallop at the weekend and therefore we'll have to put his Champion Hurdle challenge on hold until next year."

He added: "I've yet to discuss a plan with Simon Munir(owner) but Grandouet is not a horse for two and a half miles and therefore I doubt he'd go to Aintree."

More to follow. . .

Dont throw away any AP dockets just yet, Henderson has form as they say, and I noticed on BF the last few day a few punters trying to get Spirit Son matched at big odds, you just wouldnt know what he is up to tbh.

Henderson obv has a huge bet on Hurricane Fly. JP needs to get Binocular out quickly.

Well he has won 2 of the last 3 Champion Hurdles. So it's not that bad.

And about 10 of them 10/1 or under have got injured within a few weeks of the race.

Ok, people (so as not to be accused of being sexist) please stop attacking the poster or insulting people. Just be nice. If you can't be nice, just report the post and say nothing on thread! Please? Thanks.

Delighted,I got on Binocular this morning before the news.

All I need now is for Hurricane Fly to strain something on the gallops.

Thinking of putting a couple of euro on Grandouet on Betfair. Must check what price he is as you never know what Henderson is up to.

Lads, Henderson is not plotting up every horse that gets hurt. Binocular wasnt injured that year, he just wasnt sparkling at home.

Spirit Son and Grandouet have dodgy limbs.

Dont waste your money

Does not matter what he's up to as he has as much chance winning this Champion Hurdle whether he runs or not.
